Helena Bonham Carter, Colin Firth, and Geoffrey Rush in The King's SpeechAll right, kids, we’re on a roll. Two years ago, I correctly predicted 16 out of 24 winners at the annual Oscars ceremony. Last year, I scored 18 right. So this year, let’s go out on a limb and suggest that I’m gonna guess accurately in ... I dunno ... 11, 12 categories ... ?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Inception

[Author's note: In the 11 days since this article was first published, a number of generally reliable pre-Oscar-nomination indicators have seen the light, including the nominees for several guild awards and the British Academy of Film & Television Awards (BAFTA), and the overall mood of the rooms during the Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globes ceremonies. Consequently, with less than 40 hours to go before the Academy Awards nominations are announced, I've changed my official predictions in a number of categories. Let's see if I turn out to be smarter or stupider in the wake of my last-minute changes! My new picks, along with some commentary, will follow the originally published predictions.]

 

No novelty with a newly expanded field of 10 nominees for the big prize. No ex-spouses dueling for the Best Director trophy. No nutty, left-field Best Picture contenders along the lines of Star Trek and Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Hangover. Where’s the fun in reading predictions about this year’s field of Oscar nominees?

Why, in the possibility of Mike falling flat on his precognostic face, that’s where!

Boy, are the movies in a sorry state!
